SOURCE: when in 4wd it makes a noise

Is the noise in the front or middle? If it's in the front, it is most probably a wheel hub or differential case bearing. First I would check (or replace) all the gear lube in the transfer case and both differentials.
If the sound is under the middle of the jeep, it's probably a front output bearing in the transfer case.

Slim possibility it could be a bearing too. When it's not under load and is free-wheeling (2wd) the stress on the hub assembly changes, making the clicking more noticeable. When under a load, being driven, the pressure on the bearing would be more steady (in 4wd) and might make it less noticeable, if at all.

SOURCE: 04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end

3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

You probably have a bad encoder motor.It is located on the side of the transfer case on the drivers side.It is black.The other problem they had with these was the switch but you have already replaced this so your next thing is the encoder motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

Front differential?


Sounds like the transfer case is not engaging into 4wd. It has a solenoid or actuator, but it could be damaged inside too.

soory to say this but it sounds like its time for a trany overhaul, this happens, even if you had no warning signs, you got 159,000 miles out of it but now its time for a rebuilt trany, this truck is a 1999 4wd with a good engine its worth repairing, good luck.

2003 chevy silverado 2500 HD when ingageing 4 wheel high on the fly it makes a load clunk and grinding noise


I had a similar problem and had to have the 4 wheel drive serviced. It need new grease. the grease i had was old and it was causing the gears not engage cleanly thus causing the grinding sound until they were realigned.
